Friday/ the snow in the North Cascades

Washington State Dept of Traffic recently tweeted a picture of State Route 20 at the Early Winter Spires. The road is closed for winter, but they will evaluate next week what needs to be done to start clearing the road.  I compared their picture with mine, which I took on a road trip last year.

The big asterisk * marks the location of the pictures. It looks as if 19% more snow than normal, had fallen there this 2017/18 winter season. [Prepared by USDA/ NRCS]
